Location is hard to beat, close to both the car ferry and the passenger ferry. Plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance, and the beaches are close by right off of North Shore Drive. And did I mention the balcony views?!

We stayed in Sueno Del Mar. 3 bedroom, wrap around balcony, perfect for our family! We booked through Crandall On St John and they were AMAZING! We walked to dinner every night, walked to the boat docks for our charters, perfect location!

Three couples rented a 3 bedroom condo via VRBO. We couldn't have been happier. The only 2 negative things I have to say: 1) Cranky next door neighbor got pissy with us twice, once we were on the deck at 11pm making a bit too much noise (I get that), but another time while waiting in the hallway (before 5pm mind you) for maintenance to let us in (our keys didn't work and the mechanism in the door itself had to be repaired). 2) The shower heads in both bathrooms are in need of replacement. Otherwise: our place was very well equipped/maintained by a management company: spotlessly clean, an amazing view from a wrap-around deck, well appointed kitchen, numerous towels for both bathrooms and beach, dedicated parking space for the unit & storage locker in the garage w/beach chairs, RT transfers from/to ferry (we walked but they p/u & d/o luggage), WiFi, soaps, shampoos, coffee filters and such. We chose this property because it offers C/A where most other properties we checked offered A/C only in the bedrooms. Next door is a great bar that guests of Grande Bay are welcomed to a comp. cocktail 2 nights per week, and a shop to rent (very reasonably) snorkel gear. We used the car to commute to beaches, but amazing restaurants and bars are within walking distance of the property: a particular feature we appreciated as we were there to celebrate & imbibe and did so w/o the worry of driving! We are foodies as well and cannot say we had a bad meal. One evening we took a private ferry to Lovango Cay for dinner and that was amazing. Many years ago we designated Mullet Bay Beach as the one to beat, it is the only beach we will go to on St. Maarten. Since then quite a number of St. John beaches have bumped it down our list...some not as expansive, but all with stunning, clear blue water and awesome snorkeling. I also highly recommend a Catamaran cruise over to White Bay Beach, Jost VanDyke (the one that has so far surpassed all).

This is our most recent of many trips to St John, the 1st one since the devastating hurricanes. I’m happy to report the island is as beautiful as ever & the local community so welcoming and resilient. Usually we have family and get a villa but since this was just a couple trip we decided to get a 1 bedroom suite n Cruz Bay. We lucked out with our unit. Very clean, had all the amenities needed and beautiful views. Plus just a few steps to great restaurants & town. Although it’s close to town, it’s quiet & private. I give it 4 stars as I wouldn’t categorize it as luxurious but certainly checked all the boxes for our needs this time around.

Our family of four with two tweens enjoyed this stay as our third stop of four locations. We stayed four nights. The children enjoyed the newer pool and hot tub. It is a nice place for kids to socialize and play. It is a short walk to any downtown location including the terrace right next door, and mangoes across town near mango junction. Also a convenience store two blocks down next to the church. We did one longer walk to the sprague history museum and library which was still closed from the storms. Near there, up the hill is a dolphin market that is large. Also close by is a liyyle bakery with fresh baked goods. There is a beach just outside that you can see but most folks go into town and catch a taxi to any of the famous beaches like trunk bay and cinnamon bay. We tried the crown bay ferry but there was a problem but they quickly took care of driving us to the red hook ferry. We are not late night people but there is that here if you like bars and parties. The new years eve party was in two locations in town. Many pretty yachts in harbor to view. If I do this again, hopefully, I would skip St T and go right to St J. Recommend the bad kitty catamaran charter. We did the all day trip which needed passports, but worth it. Kids had an incredible time and it was a very happy trip. It may rain, which makes the pool a nice closeby place to occupy kids. I cant say enough about the view. There is a small computer in the office e that my daughter used to check on her school registration. Pack lightly as it is a 4 block walk to ferry. I was happy we left momas large suitcase at home and went with a small roller for each of us, a bag for the snorkel gear, and beach bag. I dont k ow why I packed socks, you wont need them. A little bug spray is optional for walks to beaches, rugs not bad but we each got a couple mosquitoe bites on ankles.
